I listen to light classical music quite a bit and often tune in to it through the offerings on satellite television. The various music channels from which you can choose provide information on what is currently being played. If your choice in music is vocal: pop, country R&B, rock, etc. the information is quite useful. You will find out the song title, the artist playing/singing, the album containing that music.
This system fails badly for classical music. Unlike those other types of music classical is defined by the composer and that particular piece of information is the one most often missing. How useful is: Suite #3 played by the New York Philharmonic from the album Famous Suites? I want to know who wrote it. A complete title would also be useful. There are lots of listeners out there who may be able to tell Haydn from Mozart or Brahms from Liszt and even one symphony from another but my novice ears aren’t among them.
Whoever types in the relevant information also to get either lost or bored on a regular basis. Whole lines are sometimes left out making the music a complete mystery. Quality control obviously isn’t a criteria for the music providers and they don’t know much, if anything, about classical. Neither do I but I won’t be getting educated by the folks on satellite television muzak, that is for sure!
